Doniger / Burroughs Prevails on Summary Judgment in Fashion Law Case

Venice, CA – In a decision out of the Central District of California today, the Honorable Otis D. Wright II has granted summary judgment in favor of a Doniger / Burroughs client on a copyright claim involving the misappropriation of a fabric design. The artist in that case created the design at issue and was successfully marketing fabric bearing said design when the defendant, B&Y Fashion, began selling garments bearing a direct copy of the artist’s design. Judge Wright approved the arguments advanced by Doniger / Burroughs on behalf of the artist and found that B&Y was liable for copyright infringement.

Scott Alan Burroughs, Esq. and Trevor W. Barrett, Esq. of Doniger / Burroughs represent the plaintiff.
